plant photosynthesis of some species may not saturate until 1000 μmol·m −2 ·s −1 or greater ( Taiz and Zeiger, 2006 ). Basil may follow a similar pattern. The growth responses of basil to different irradiances have not been studied, and development of a

plants can become toxic in older leaves, causing premature senescence and a reduction in total photosynthetic leaf area ( Munns, 2002 ). Such reductions in leaf area are likely to decrease whole plant photosynthesis and thus growth. Fig. 5. The

thus the results may be different from results of whole-plant photosynthesis under growing conditions, which are more appropriate to explain RGRs. In the present study, cucumber seedlings were grown under light with a normal R:FR (similar to that of

DM allocation to the fruits will decrease LAI (based on the negative correlation between the two parameters; Table 4 ), and this may decrease whole-plant photosynthesis sufficiently to decrease fruit yield. We conclude that high-yielding cultivars
